Body length of female: 4.36-4.72 mm (n=20). Body length of male: 4.15-4.52 mm (n=20). Length of A3 in male: longer than A2. Punctation of frons above antennal scrobe: dense. Sculpture of antennal scrobe: punctate rugose to smooth. Central keel: absent. Sculpture of ventrolateral frons: punctate rugose. Occipital carina: complete. Sculpture of posterior vertex: densely punctate to punctate rugose. Sculpture of gena: densely punctate to punctate rugose. Sculpture of occiput: punctate rugose.

Color of mesosoma: black. Sculpture of dorsal pronotal area: punctate rugose. Sculpture of lateral pronotal area: densely punctate. Sculpture of netrion: anterior half rugulose, posterior half smooth. Setae of netrion: dense throughout. Sculpture of notaulus: contiguously punctate. Sculpture of mesoscutal midlobe: largely punctate rugose, with a medial furrow and smooth areas laterally. Sculpture of lateral lobe of mesoscutum: sparsely punctate. Sculpture of lateral propodeal area: rugose. Setation of mesoscutellum: dense. Sculpture of mesoscutellum: coarsely punctate rugose. Median propodeal projection: short. Mesopleural carina: distinct. Sculpture of mesepisternum anteroventral to mesopleural depression: punctate rugose. Sculpture of dorsal metapleural area: smooth to rugulose. Sculpture of ventral metapleural area: punctate rugose. Setation of ventral metapleural area: dense. Color of legs: orange-yellow to dark brown; dark brown to black. Sculpture of hind coxa: densely punctate.

Color of metasoma: black; black with T3-T4 and S2-S5 partly brown to yellow. T1 horn in female: present. Sculpture of posterior margin of T1 in female: densely longitudinally striate, punctate rugulose in interstices. Transverse sulcus on T2: present. Sculpture of T2-T5: densely longitudinally striate, with fine punctures in interstices. Sculpture of T6 in female: densely longitudinally striate, with fine punctures in interstices. Length of T6 in female: distinctly longer than wide. Apex of T6 in female: round. Sculpture of S2: longitudinally striate rugose. Sculpture of T1 in male: densely longitudinally striate, punctate rugulose in interstices. Male T8 apical spine: present.

Diagnosis.

This species is most similar to H. persimilis  but can be distinguished by its short median propodeal projection and longitudinally striate T6 in female.

Comments.

The metasomal color in H. flavipes  varies from entirely dark brown to having T3-T4 and S2-S5 mostly yellow, apparently without any correlation with geography. In males, the length of the spine at the apex of T8 varies from short to long, but it is always present.
